Psychology Tutor Skype | Online Psychology Tuition Sheffield

Methodology

My 13 years experience working as a Principal Examiner included responsibility for writing your A Level and AS Psychology exam papers for a major exam board; awarding grades to students and writing the all important examiner reports.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach A Level and GCSE Psychology - Edexcel and AQA boards.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

(2009) Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors (CIEA) - Fellow
(2000) - MSc Psychology (Masters)
(1995) - Post 16 Certificate Education (PGCE)
(1992) - BSc Social Sciences

- How much do you charge?

£50p/h, via bank transfer, Paypal, or cheque.

- Where do you teach?

Online and face to face

- When are you available?

Availability on request but am a full time online tutor 24/7.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All of my tutees are either GCSE or A level students who are doing Psychology for either AQA or Edexcel

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

A Level and GCSE Psychology - Edexcel and AQA

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Whether its simplifying content or more importantly understanding what the examiners want then look no further.
My sessions are always dictated by the needs of the student and we will typically focus on building confidence in understanding and answering exam questions. Getting your written abilities to match your verbal abilities is key as so many students know the answer but just cant write it down in the exam in order to get marks.
Exams have changed significantly so there is less guessing what's going to be on the paper and a heavier focus on applying knowledge to questions. I will challenge you to tackle these and other types of questions so you are fully prepared for them.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I always say 50% of your grade in August will be down to the correct type of revision and the other 50% is down to how you interpret the exam question, together we will successfully tackle both. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve something special.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

My role as a senior examiner has given me a true insight into how Psychology exam papers are set and marked having supervised the marking of thousands of exams since 2002. I was also part of the team that wrote and produced the new A Level Psychology specifications for 2008 and 2015.
I have been providing training and support to staff and students since 2003 and visit numerous schools and colleges regularly especially during the key revision season. I am a regular speaker for Keynote Educational Ltd and also run successful staff and student Psychology webinars for Resourcd.com. I have written articles for Psychology Review and my new revision guide for A Level Edexcel Psychology was published by Hodder on March 31st 2017

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors (CIEA)

Ali was an excellent A level tutor and we were thrilled with the A* grade that our daughter achieved. She said Ali was an amazing support for her and helped her with exam and revision techniques as well as gaining a wider understanding of the subject.

Ali’s help was invaluable in helping me achieve my final grade. He provided useful revision notes and tasks. Always happy to help in which ever way he can and made It interesting and fun.

Ali is a very good tutor and personally the best I've had at any means of learning. He is very knowledgable about psychology, gives students respect and offers a means of teaching not taught in school. Before I came to Ali I was a C student and with only a few lessons Ali very much helped me achieve my A in A level. If you are in need of a tutor in psychology then I would very much recommend Ali.
